Locative media Locative media or Location-based media are media of communication functionally bound to a location. The physical implementation of locative media, however, is not bound to the same location to which the content refers. Location-based media (LBM) delivers multimedia and other content directly to the user of a mobile device dependent upon their location. Location information determined by means such as mobile phone tracking and other emerging Real-time locating system technologies like Wi-Fi or RFID can be used to customize media content presented on the device. The term was jointly coined at the 2004 Consumer Electronics Show by Tom Brammar, the then Chief Executive of Node, and Martin Hill, founder of the Product Management function and practices at Symbian, and wireless pioneer. Locative media are digital media applied to real places and thus triggering real social interactions.

In archaeology - as with locative media - nothing is considered more important than context [1]. "The archaeological experience of ruin, decay and site formation processes reveals something vital about social reality, but something which is usually disavowed.

Core Fulbright Scholar Program | Awards Catalog | Application Form I anticipate that after my research in [host country], I will be in a strong position to begin writing a monograph that focuses on women’s education and their scholarly networks in medieval Syria, which is the ultimate goal of my research. Such a publication will be of interest not only to scholars of medieval Islam and women’s studies but also to those who are interested in understanding the historical contexts of Muslim educational systems. Further, I expect that this study can contribute to future work in the field of comparative religions as there are a number of intriguing parallels between medieval Muslim female scholars and their Christian counterparts in Western Europe. Finally, this research will enhance my teaching at Lafayette College. I have found that my passion for my scholarship is best communicated to my students through concrete examples from research that I have personally undertaken. Prof. The impact of a Fulbright award for my home institution would be significant.
